It’s good you have clarified this in time. We accept your point @SpiceSocial1
Anything that hurts religious sentiments should be clarified with clear communication https://t.co/jn00Uk1VNt

In an affidavit submitted in Bombay High Court, the makers of Zero asserted that to avoid hurting religious sentiments of Sikh community, surely scenes and one particular poster, which allegedly depicted Shah Rukh holding a kirpan (an article of utmost religious reverence in the Sikh community), have been digitally altered.
Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma, and Katrina Kaif play lead role in the film Zero.
“Despite the fact that the film and its poster depicted only an ornamental dagger and not a ‘kirpan’, steps have been taken by the respondent to alter the relevant scenes. The portions in question have been altered through visual effects to depict an ornamental sword,” read a statement by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, NDTV reported
Directed by Aanand L Rai, Zero features Shah Rukh Khan as a vertically challenged character while Anushka Sharma plays a specially-abled scientist. Katrina Kaif features as an alcoholic superstar.
The film is all set to hit screens this Friday (21 December)
